The ex-couple seemed pretty happy in each other's company

Sam Faiers has sparked rumours that she’s back with ex-fianc√© Joey Essex after they were snapped holding hands last night.

The pair laughed and gazed into each other’s eyes as they left Essex hotel Kings Oak together, where the TOWIE cast had been hanging out for a charity fashion show.

Sam, 22, and Joey, 23, left the venue through a back door before driving off together in his car.

The pair got engaged in April but split two months later after a furious row in Marbella.

Pretty blonde Sam has been dating Mark Wright‘s cousin Elliott in recent weeks but was seen breaking things off with him after meeting up with Joey on Sunday night’s show.

The TOWIE cast wore pink at the Wednesday evening bash to support breast cancer sufferers, with Sam donning a cute short suit and gold heels.

Lucy Mecklenburgh – who wore a stunning floor-length gown – also looked pretty loved-up as she stepped out hand-in-hand with her new man Tom Pearce.
